why not flip-flop the "i"? instead of slanting the top left and the bottom right, try slanting the top right and the bottom left.

I think the lesson I learned from this may benefit others in the future: When it just isn't working, try re-thinking your design. Sometimes it's good to just play it simple. Although the simplest solutions can often be the hardest to reach: While this isn't related to the question directly, it's indirectly important: I kept working a design that didn't ...

Here's a quick take on your original idea using the same lines as the X to create balance and combining parts to reduce the overall size of the logo. Personally I believe logos should come down to the simplest form possible to create a striking presence.

Maybe smaller horizontal line on f now, with less space between letters :)

Can you use one of the front slash line from the x letter and work something out with that? It could give the logo a nice flow. My suggestion is a 5 minute work with bad proportions, but it might give you an idea of something....

Fonts like this are called glyphic serif. But since for example Optima is widely considered a sans serif, I don’t think it would be wrong to say the same for Marcellus. By the way: The German font classification system (DIN 16518) considers fonts like this to be Antiqua-Variants. Antiqua-fonts that can’t be classified clearly as serif or sans-serif go in ...

I consider it to be a serif font, the letters have very small serifs but they are there.

You didn't specify what type of design work you're doing or what platform you're working on. If you're working on Windows machines, there's a decent amount of PortableApps that might suit your needs such as Gimp, Inkscape & Blender (3D). Modern browsers like Chrome and Firefox have powerful built-in features for web development and can be extended ...

Using proper typographic terminology will help us understand what you are asking here. Tracking, the space between all characters, can be manipulated with CSS using the letter-spacing property. This has wide browser compatibility and shouldn't be an issue at all. Kerning, the space between two characters such as within a logo, is not manipulable with CSS. ...

I think you can use a comic font, which is appropriate for a comic, but still improve the legibility by changing other aspects of your typography: Use a font that uses both upper and lowercase for the longer explanations (all caps might be fine for titles Give the texts more "breathing room", separate them more from the container edges Be careful with your ...

Choosing a typeface is about pairing the elements in your design together. Designing an invite for a high-fashion event? Consider a Didone. Working on a menu for a BBQ Joint? Consider some vernacular retro wood type. Working on a thesis? A sturdy serif text face is probably a safe bet. The key is that you're pairing the typeface with the design moreso than ...

That font definitely feels unprofessional to me. If you want to keep with the form and feeling but add readability & professionalism, I'd probably use a 'loud' font that looks good in all caps (or small caps, which may be a good solution here). Possible free fonts that I can think of that may work well for you: Bebas Neue Montserrat Gotham, ...

following a style guide for documents like this will work wonders here. i'm actually really surprised no one's mention the Chicago Manual of Style, or another yet http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Chicago_Manual_of_Style

I found the solution I was in search of. The Inkscape equivalent to "Expanding the text" is "Object to Path (CTRL + SHIFT + C). I used this command for all text in the logo, saved, and it renders correctly in my HTML now.

"Weight" is highly subjective. The designer typically designs a 'regular weight', which would be '500' in the TTF units. After that, a lighter design gets a lower number and a darker design the higher number. The full range of 100..900 is to cater for everything from Ultra Light to Extra Black. Thus, the value only 'means' something in relation to lighter ...

Quark Convert? ;-) In InDesign these are called "Paragraph Styles". This functionality is not built into InDesign, but it can be done using scripting. In fact, it has been done; see, for example, http://indesignsecrets.com/print-out-style-sheet-specs.php. The download link gives you a .zip file. Extract it, which will give you a folder called 'TSRC2' (when ...

The typefaces on the football shirts are most of the time custom made. Look at these for example: http://www.designboom.com/design/nike-world-cup-fonts-07-01-2014/

Looks like Peignot Bold to me!

I'd just use the OTF version and ignore the TTF version. It's Windows TTF which is restricted to 4 faces, but Windows can easily use the OTF version. The site labeling OTF as a "Mac format" is misleading. OTF is a universal format - but then, so is TTF.

You could play with Bebas a bit and get the effect you're looking for.

According to WhatTheFont!, it's Linotype News Gothic No. 2 Yours: Linotype In the future, check that site out. You upload a sample image and it IDs the font for you.

In order to be used in form fields, the font has to be fully embedded. The font you are intend to use apparently does not have the permission to be fully embedded (but only as a subset). This is the reason why you can't use it. In this respect, the other answer is wrong. It has primarily nothing to do with the company licensing it. The consequence is that ...

The font you're looking for doesn't seem to be licensed by Microsoft, but it is by MacOS (source). You have the option of buying a license from Adobe if you'd like to use this font here. It doesn't appear you have to buy the whole package, you can get just the one you're looking for.

Can it be done? Sure, I did exactly this in Javascript, where InDesign is only used to draw curves with. The rest is done entirely with Javascript. All "font builder software" does is gather all the necessary information, format it according to the specification(s), and then write it out a file. Read everything you can find on the specifications for the ...

In legal terms, the client must purchase fonts. Whether you do that on their behalf or they do it, it needs to be done. You generally can't legally give away fonts any more than you could give away Illustrator. Fonts are software.

You could try this software: Find my Font Free or you could try asking your query at Software Recommendation StackExchange

I think section 2 sums it up fairly clearly (well, as clearly as licenses can be): Grant of Copyright License. Subject to the terms and conditions of this License, each Contributor hereby grants to You a perpetual, worldwide, non-exclusive, no-charge, royalty-free, irrevocable copyright license to reproduce, prepare Derivative Works of, publicly ...

'Manually' align to eye That's your answer. The task of aligning type is pretty much relegated to the 'trained eye'. The reason is that optically aligning type doesn't usually have any relation to mechanically aligning it. In other words, the computer simply can't figure out what looks right visually--only mathematically. Some tips: large round ...

Pass #1 "Get it approximately right" -- Align as many edges of each character as you can to a 4-pixel grid before you resize. If you're pressed for time, the most important edges are the outermost edges of each character, and the horizontal internal edges. Shrink, (I used bilinear interpolation), down to 98x98px to check which edges are still ...

Unlike in Gimp or other applications there is a strict separation of font family vs. font style in SVG, and in Inkscape. Therefore we will be presented the font family only from selection in the top panel. To change the font style (as they were defined with the installed font) we can either use the default style icons from the tool panel, or adjust it using ...

I'm not certain this is correct but would not use of the path from text command resolve the issue? I know in some versions of GIMP this was called create path from text.

I personally tend to think, in cases where the letters are so simple and geometric, that they are done by hand. Doing the letters of your logo or acronym by hand gives you extra flexibility and infinite possibilities to get a result exactly to your liking. It is normal for someone to start their design based on a font, but I find it hard to believe a ...
